BALANCE, POSTURE AND WALKING
The walk is the most important element in tango, allowing the couple to move around the floor. It is also an element of great beauty. In this class we will work on finding your balance while walking, by aligning your posture efficiently and grounding yourself through your standing leg. You will learn how to make your walk light, dynamic and musical, as well as how to stay in a comfortable embrace with your partner. We will pay special attention to elegance in posture and leg movement.
WORKING THE FREE LEG
The movement of the free leg is what makes our dance connected and elegant by creating beautiful lines on the floor. In this class we will work on the technique of “projecting” the free leg in various directions in space and on transferring weight in a fluid motion. We will study linear and circular movements in both walking and sacadas. You will learn how to make the overall movement light and powerful, all the while remaining strong on the standing leg.
